White Terrorism and Privilege

I know. I know. Not all white men, right?

I write this as a white, cishet, man. I write this from a place of privilege. And I write this from a place of disgust.

This. Cannot. Continue.

On August 3, 2019, a 20-year-old white man entered an El Paso, Texas Walmart and killed 20 people, wounding 26 more. He was apprehended “without incident.” Rest assured, a black man would not have been arrested “without incident.” I’m almost equally sure he never would have done it.
